Relation of amylase to starch and Lycasin metabolism in human dental plaque in vitro.

Abstract

Acid production activity (APA) in plaque suspensions from glucose, boiled soluble starch and hydrogenated starch hydrolysate (Lycasin) was studied in 11 subjects. Amylase (alpha-1,4-glucan 4-glucanohydrolase, EC 3.2.1.1) activity was measured in plaque and whole saliva samples from the same persons. Lycasin was found to be hydrolyzed by salivary amylase… (More)
